NVIDIA is reportedly looking to include artificial intelligence (AI) in its new GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) drivers expected to release in the first quarter of this year (Q1 2023), which are rumored to considerably improve the performance of the company’s graphics cards.
According to a new report by CapFrameX, a game performance analysis tool, NVIDIA is purportedly working on “AI optimized drivers” that could enhance the game performance of compatible GeForce graphics cards by “up to 30%”. Further, the performance improvement that will be gained will increase by an average of 10%.
[Rumor] Nvidia is working on AI optimized drivers. Release maybe this year (Q1).
?? Up to 30% more performance
?? Average improvement ~10%
?? No info about specific gen
Take this with a grain of salt. If true Nvidia drivers will be real "fine wine". pic.twitter.com/QGTUL9iK7N

CapFrameX claims that AI optimizations when added to GPU drivers would focus on “instructions, throughput, hardware utilization, threading, settings”.
Apparently, AMD is working on a similar feature called HYPR-RX for upcoming Radeon graphics, which will be a single-click performance boost technology combining Radeon Super Resolution (RSR), Radeon Boost, and Radeon Anti-Lag.
This one-click solution will reduce system latency in games (Anti-Lag), enable dynamic resolution scaling (Boost), and include support for spatial image scaling, which improves game performance (RSR).
Coming to the CapFrameX report, it does not provide information on which graphics cards will support these new AI optimized GPU drivers. Also, it is unclear how would such AI optimization improve NVIDIA’s GPU drivers and affect the user’s experience of graphic processing.
Since CapFrameX’s report is highly uncertain, it looks like we will have to wait for more information on the NVIDIA AI drivers to be revealed.
